Polka Party - 1961

Polka Party record label

Dick Sinclair was one of our first jocks. He was in that first class at Fox Film studios in 1943, went to the Mosquito Network. When he got back he made polka music incredibly popular, a syndicated radio show, several TV shows. He loved his work. By the 1950s Polka Party was on AFRTS and continued through the late 1960s.
